Soundworks at Phase One Festival

Tuesday 14th April, 2015

This Easter weekend the Phase One Festival took place at The Dock Arts Centre, Carrick-On-Shannon, Leitrim
Including Soundworks by Jimmy Eadie and David Bickley.

Soundworks is a series of sound instillations and electro-acoustic works presented as part of Crash Ensemble's fringe events.
The Phase One Festival presents cutting edge electronic music, visual art, animation, film, master-classes and workshops in the superb surroundings of The Dock Arts Centre. The event is a celebration of electronic music and art in all its forms.

Jimmy Eadie : Wow & Flutter (2014)
Wow & Flutter refers to the phenomena of mechanical instabilities of turntables that can cause subtle pitch variations and beating effects on playback.The installation is made up of eight duplicate acetate lacquers played on eight vintage turntables. Acetate lacquers were chosen as they disintegrate more rapidly then standard vinyl and as such the composition will 'age' with each successive play until the surface noise becomes intertwined with the music itself.

David Bickley : MATERIALS (2013) MACHINES (2014)
Based on the idea of a spiritual line drawn across the Irish landscape this piece mirrors a symbolic journey.  MATERIALS uses a number of cutting edge cinematic techniques and devices to "play" with time and space producing a powerful and emotive destabilising effect upon the viewer. The film is made up of seven segments, each backed by an evocative ambient score also produced by David in conjunction with a number of leading figures from the modern electronic music scene including producers Tom Green (The Orb, Another Fine Day) and Dare Mason (Noctorum). MACHINES is the sequel to MATERIALS.
